2020 is a Christmas like no other, characterized around the world by the COVID-19 pandemic, which in turn highlights many other problems and emergencies for humanity: shortages, conflicts, inequalities ...
At the same time, perhaps like never before, the current situation gives us more insight into what the fact that the son of God assumed our human condition, with all its limits, actually means. In the baby Jesus, without reserve God exposed himself to all the risks of our life, to all its illnesses and dangers.
This draws such gratitude and humility, encouraging us to take such risks ourselves in living for one another, without reserve.
